Documentation

Now I can't sleep, and I might as well do something productive. I'm in the middle of configuring a Linux kernel for this desknote, and documenting what I have done to get this desknote up and running as how I want it. I'm still looking for a place where I can put the document, because I don't have any access to webspace which I could call my own.

I don't know if putting it on my personal webspace in UPLB would do, but then that site experiences too much downtime. I'm feeling hesitant to put it on my free.net.ph page, because it's free, and besides I don't want to use up too much of Jijo's hard drive space. I might ask help from a few friends with some webspace to spare, or i might just as well put it up at some mailing list archived forever, which google may access for further note.

I'm thinking of lending my services to people too, charging them in the process. I discovered that I have an uncanny liking for rendering service to people in need, or at least those who need my services. I might as well charge for the installation of linux into their computers, and offer them technical support for a small "nominal" fee. Just so that it could cover my internet bill, as well as my cellphone bill. :) I might even use the money to pay my dad for the amount he lent me to be able to buy this desknote. :)

I am oozing with ideas, and the only venue I can air it is here on my blog. ;) Those in the Philippines who want to be part of this endeavor of mine, please feel free to email me. I will reply ASAP.

i have got to fix my bio clock... HELP!!

update: it seems that I can't do things right with Morphix, because there are a lot of things missing for me to do certain things -- i keep encountering dependency problems, and i guess I'm gonna need to apt-get upgrade this baby somewhere there's broadband internet. oh well, so much for the hype. but i am still going the debian way. :)

Appreciating Rizal...

Nope, this is not an academic post. More of a reflective and wrote-because-i-was-enlightened type post. Anyway, I just passed a paper on Rizal's notion of a nation according to Quibuyen (a local writer who devoted a book -- A Nation Aborted -- on his treatise on Rizal). Chapter 6 was an interesting read, and a definite eye opener. Rizal all of a sudden became interesting, especially to someone like me who could care less. It seems that most of what Rizal aims for and wrote about is still evident in today's Philippines as I see it. I wonder why I didn't get to appreciate Rizal and his work when I was still in high school -- might be the fault of the high school and the curriculum, or might be because I was still considerably immature then. I wasn't able to understand most of Rizal's writings though even if I got to reading them basically because they translated from Spanish to Filipino/Tagalog. I don't have problems with Tagalog, until you put it in writing. I

So much for that...

I just came home from the seminar regarding my proposed load balancing algorithm. I tried to get as candid as I can, but still half of what I said was jargon -- which made me explain the thing in layman's terms and using more colloquial examples. I was wearing a black suit, (chinese collared americana suit that is), gray slacks, black leather belt (perry ellis), and leather shoes (by bristol). I'm beginning to sound like a caption to a fashion mag's pic, but I digress... So there I was, waiting for the seminar to start. As a speaker, I conducted myself properly and tried to get things cleared out with my co-presentors. I was asuuming that they knew at least half of what they were supposed to talk about, and that they knew how to speak in front of a crowd. BUT NO... I sat through two presentors, the first one reading the presentation of the projection, and then doing no explaining whatsoever. I didn't get that because she prepared her own slides, and prepared the hand

Mobility

Everyday, I am getting fascinated more and more by the technology literally in the palm of my hands when I look at and use my cellular phone. Thanks to the ingenuity and vision of the makers of the Sony Ericsson K750i, I enjoy the features that make my life a little more enjoyable and bearable amidst the hectic schedule I have. Like the fact that I can actually access my email from my cellphone using IMAP4+TLS/SSL?! If only it wasn't so darned expensive to access information through the SMART's GPRS network... Anyway, this is how my dad's cellphone looks like (treated at an angle up close and embarassingly personal). I wanted to see how it would turn out treated as a subject in black and white. I don't know why I feel that the omnipotence and omnipresence of anything is best captured using black and white photos. I feel that it preserves the object, but takes out the frills and color otherwise distractions to the scene. I feel that it also allows me to capture what is
